SWOT AnalysisSWOT Analysis

SWOTS in Business Insights: Essentials

Do a company search. Note that BI:E now offers SWOT Analysis from "Global Markets Direct." Once in Business Insights: Essentials, click on the "Companies" tab, and then select the "SWOT Reports" option.

Business Source Premier

Look up the name of your company in the "Company Profiles" tab.  Once you find the company MarketLine Report, search the table of contents.  Most of these MarketLine reports contain SWOT analysis. SWOTs may not be available for smaller or more obscure companies.


Look up a company and then click on the "Analyst Research" tab on the left column.  This unique analysis often contains elements of a SWOT analysis. Note that there is often an archive of older reports as well.

Passport GMID

Passport GMID has over 4,000 company profiles, many of which have SWOT Analysis.  To find them, use key word "SWOT" in the search box in the upper right corner.  Then use the filters on the left column to limit the search results to companies.  You may find other sorts of SWOTs here as well.
